Statement From The Premier

Victor P Taffa

After a brave and painful battle with cancer, my father Bob Andrews passed away this afternoon.

“On behalf of my family I want to thank the many healthcare professionals who have cared so wonderfully for Bob.” Premier Daniel Andrews said.

We are indebted to the staff at Wangaratta, St. Vincent’s, The Royal Melbourne and Ambulance Victoria for their love, care and compassion.

“A special thanks to Mr. Ben Thomson and Mr. Brian Le.”


To friends, colleagues and complete strangers who’ve offered encouragement and support these past 20 months, I’m so grateful.

“Bob is gone too soon but leaves many lives enriched by his hard work and generous spirit.” Premier Andrews said.
